Frome Festival Headliners Confirmed
Headlining acts this year include DJ Judge Jules, with a ten-piece live band in an opening night party on the Friday 5th July; followed by major indie act The Coral, on Monday 8th, and on Friday 12th July, the chart- topping Scouting for Girls, all at the Cheese and Grain.
The Memorial Theatre will present Danceworks, and perennial favourite, Cornish comedian Jethro. In a post- Festival “Encore” the theatre will also host The Drifters on Saturday 19th.
With the exception of Judge Jules, the above shows are all selling in advance of the Festival at their respective box office outlets and on-line – please click on above image if you would like to book an early ticket. Although a small stock of tickets will be held back for sale in most cases for the official box office launch on Sunday 19th May, customers are advised to book early. Most Festival events will go up for sale at our central Cheese and Grain box office from May 19th to the General Public, with Festival Friends priority booking will on the 17th & 18th; but the major events are tied in to national tours and have to be announced earlier.
Exciting programmes are also being planned at the Silk Mill, Cooper Hall and The Merlin Theatre. Spring brochures and websites for each venue will carry information in the near future. Christ Church, Holy Trinity and St. John’s will all be presenting programmes of classical and modern music.
This year the Festival will present a Comedy Crawl for the first time. Comedians will be engaged to visit various bar or shop premises along Catherine Hill in rotation to expectantly awaiting audiences during the course of one evening.
The Frome Festival is delighted to be involved in the celebration of the 200th Anniversary of JW Singer and the foundry that dominated the Frome skyline for many years, casting some of the world’s most famous statues.
Tickets are on sale now through the Box Office at the Cheese and Grain, larger venues Box offices and online.
